00:22:02 <hppavilion[1]> How about... a programming language with no form of multi-statement control flow
00:22:20 <hppavilion[1]> All code must be written as a series of one-liners (called "actions")
00:22:31 <hppavilion[1]> And once a one-liner completes, it cannot be executed again
00:22:39 <hppavilion[1]> (though events may be created)
00:23:13 <Phantom_Hoover> that's either clearly non-TC or you'd end up doing everything in one statement
00:23:20 <hppavilion[1]> Phantom_Hoover: Yes, that's the point
00:23:52 <hppavilion[1]> Phantom_Hoover: You have to partial-vectorize over lazy lists and such to get anything to work
00:25:03 <hppavilion[1]> Phantom_Hoover: A program that runs forever, for example, is [put(x%128) for x in [0, 1...] if x%128 > 31]
00:26:16 <hppavilion[1]> Phantom_Hoover: Clearly a one-liner, but infinite. Specifically, it prints the printable ASCII characters over and over again in cycle (with a short delay between each, though it's only 31 ticks)
00:27:50 <hppavilion[1]> A truth machine is [print('1') for x in [...]] if (x := input()) = '1' else if x = '0' print('0') else fail

20:08:11 <myname> is there any idiomatic way to default to a deriving(Show) in haskell for deugging purposes that does not require commenting out the whole instance?
20:13:42 <prooftechnique> What do you mean?
20:14:15 <prooftechnique> Like, your own Show instances?
20:14:18 <myname> like, i have data Foo = ... deriving (Eq); instance Show Foo where ...
20:14:43 <myname> now i want to derive show for foo instead of my instance to debug shit
20:15:07 <prooftechnique> What's wrong with deriving Show?
20:15:30 <prooftechnique> data Foo = ... deriving (Eq, Show)
20:15:54 <myname> it complains about duplicate definitions
20:16:04 <prooftechnique> Oh, I see what you're asking!
20:16:10 <prooftechnique> Sorry, took me a minute
20:16:27 <prooftechnique> You have a real show instance that you want to use in production, but you just want to use the default one for debugging
20:16:28 <myname> no big deal
20:16:57 <myname> yeah
20:17:18 -!- atrapado has joined.
20:19:02 <prooftechnique> Hmm. I guess you could write your Show instance for a wrapped variant of your type, though I guess that could get ugly
20:19:18 <prooftechnique> I actually don't know if there's a good way, other than that
20:19:32 <prooftechnique> Oh, or write a debug wrapper for your type, then derive Show on that
20:19:42 <prooftechnique> It's uglier, but only for debugging :)
20:20:04 <prooftechnique> You could even write some helper functions to handle wrapping and unwrapping
20:20:30 <myname> if i derive show on a debug wrapper, it will still use the instance of the wrapped class
20:20:47 <prooftechnique> Oh, duh.
20:25:27 <prooftechnique> On further thought, I don't think the open world assumption really works with that sort of use :(
20:25:46 -!- jaboja has joined.
20:26:50 <prooftechnique> Other than writing a separate class to replace your show instance (or something orthogonal like using trace), I think you'll have to comment things.
20:27:04 <prooftechnique> I guess you could #ifdef things, but that's a whole other thing
20:28:32 <prooftechnique> Or something like this? http://stackoverflow.com/a/28666200/794944
20:30:51 <myname> ah, that might work

23:26:08 * oerjan immediately regrets the ...
23:27:17 * oerjan now wonders what persimmon is in german
23:27:41 <int-e> "Kaki"
23:28:54 <oerjan> apparently both names (minus an m) are used in norwegian. not that i've really noticed them.
23:31:02 <int-e> A parsimonious algorithm is one that doesn't ask redundant questions... I believe Knuth coined the term for his analysis of convex hull algorithms based on "clockwise" predicates. The predicate is true for three points PQR if the triangle PQR has P,Q,R in clockwise order. But the computation is subject to loss of precision if done with floating point numbers, and algorithms may run into trouble...
23:31:08 <int-e> ...with contradictory answers. One principled way to avoid such trouble is not to ask redundant questions. Hence the concept.
23:31:58 <int-e> (The term is also applicable to sorting.)
23:32:08 <oerjan> yeah i knew the sorting version
23:32:20 <oerjan> merge sort fulfils that, i think.
23:33:32 <oerjan> you could create a (badly balanced) shuffling algorithm by calling such a sort algorithm with a random comparison predicate
23:34:14 <int-e> Most sorting algorithms have the property, I think... including insertion sort, heap sort, many implementations of quicksort. Shellsort is one exception I can think of.
23:34:21 <oerjan> i think i experimented with that in the channel once.
23:34:53 <int-e> but I may be wrong about heapsort, actually
23:35:55 -!- Sgeo has joined.
23:36:04 * oerjan isn't overly clear on all those
23:36:24 <int-e> And I guess that sorting networks are generally not very good at avoiding redundant comparisons.
23:39:57 <int-e> Yeah, the standard array based heap sort is not on the list, because it places many elements inside the heap twice (once when building the heap (raising elements) and once in the extraction phase (sinking elements)). A pity :)
23:41:06 <Greenlock> What list is this and what are we sorting?
23:41:35 <int-e> The list is the list of parsimonious sorting algorithms.
23:41:49 <oerjan> and how is it sorted?
23:42:02 <int-e> (comparison based, so it doesn't really matter how its sorted)
23:42:14 * int-e -----###s oerjan.
23:42:26 <oerjan> ah but are you sure the comparisons are repeatable
23:42:52 <int-e> no.
23:42:59 <int-e> the whole point is that they need not be repeatable
23:43:01 * oerjan snags his swatter back
23:43:25 <oerjan> so you are saying the list is parsimoniously sorted?

23:46:50 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: I don't think BNF is TC
23:47:05 <oerjan> well BNF is for context-free grammars, so
23:47:18 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: That's what I thought
23:47:28 <hppavilion[1]> oerjan: The TCBNF I speak of is fairly simple
23:47:46 <hppavilion[1]> It's like BNF, but every rule has an unbounded nonnegative integer associated with it

23:48:06 <hppavilion[1]> There are two new "operators" for matching, of the syntaxes x++ and x--{y}{z}
23:48:14 <hppavilion[1]> I assume everyone knows where I'm going with this

23:51:19 <hppavilion[1]> Though in reality, it just pushes a clone of the current environment onto a stack every time backtracking may occur, then discards the ToS if it doesn't after completion and POPs it and uses it as the new environment if it does backtrack
